An alien crash lands on Earth, and for ten years terrorizes the planet, hiding, periodically killing and eating people and stealing materials for some unknown purpose. The only hope is Bart Stanton, a medically-engineered superman, designed for the sole purpose of confronting the “Nipe”.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Space-Based Telemetry and Range Safety study is a multiphase project to increase data rates and flexibility and decrease costs by using space-based communications assets for telemetry during launches and landings. Phase 1 used standard S-band antennas with the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System to obtain a baseline performance. The selection process and available resources for Phase 2 resulted in a Ku-band phased array antenna system....

GM is about the direct manipulation of an organismâs genes. Techniques of molecular cloning and transformation are used to alter the structure and characteristics of genes directly. In the mid-nineties While studying for an HND in Organic Agriculture in the UK's East Midlands, Jim McNulty became concerned about the application of Genetic Engineering techniques in agriculture. He got connected to the internet and started to investigate was going on in America. He took part early discussions...

In October 1997, the Princess Royal opened the Wellcome Trust's Human Genome Project Research Centre at Hinxton near Cambridge. The campus is also the seat of the European Bioinformatics Institute, the Sanger Centre of the Wellcome Trust, and the MRC's Human Genome Project Mapping Resource Centre. The aim is to decode more than one-sixth of the human genes by the year 2002. This short film explains some of the work that goes on at Hinxton. 1 segment.

FTR #220 Reviewing material about the use of genetically engineered adenoviruses for "gene therapy" which uses viruses to introduce DNA into cells in order to correct genetic defects. (The adenovirus causes the common cold, and neutralizes the p53 gene, which helps to prevent cancer.) The cancer-causing monkey virus SV40 also neutralizes the p53 gene. Mr. Emory has ruminated about the possibility of genetically engineering an adenovirus that could cause cancer. In light of the fact...

On July 17th, 2012, The Food Supply Rescue Coalition visited an Atlanta area McDonald's to try and buy a meal that did not contain Genetically Engineered products. They didn't have much luck, but they did buy a meal to see if, and how long, the elements of the meal would decompose. This is part of the lead up to the September global day of action against Monsanto. Monsanto has patented their Genetically Engineered plants and animal feed found in 90% of American food products, and McDonald's is...

The Goldstone Solar System Radar (GSSR) has successfully collected radar echo data from Mars over the past 30 years. The older data provided local elevation information for Mars, along with radar scattering information with global resolution. Since the upgrade to the 70-m DSN antenna at Goldstone completed in 1986, Mars data has been collected during all but the 1997 Mars opposition. Radar data, and non-imaging delay- Doppler data in particular, requires significant data processing to extract...
